La Selva Beach House Rental Photos and Description

2br/2ba sleeps 7

Home is located in the very desirable Sand Dollar Beach community; away from the bar scene. This is the perfect spot for families or a romantic getaway. You will be less than 200 paces to sand and surf.

The home is a real gem; located just 6 houses from sand and surf. Beautiful high vaulted ceilings, magnificent giant fireplace and over 2,100 square feet of living space. You will love how bright and airy this home is; providing both large open spaces, as well as cozy nooks for private reading and relaxing.

The reverse floor-plan, provides views of the ocean from kitchen, family room and master bedroom. A second 'bonus' family room located downstairs provides a great escape for the children or peaceful relaxation near the second woodburning fireplace.

In addition, a spacious outdoor deck provides a great place to relax, enjoy a fine meal at the outdoor dining table, take in the ocean view or simply enjoy the ocean's breeze.

The home is stocked with the latest amenities and kitchen necessities. This lovely home is very spacious, comfortably sleeps 6+. (one king, one queen, one full futon, plus a single roll-a-way bed)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Joe's rental turned out great for our family. The house is clean and well maintained as well as spacious. The layout is very flexible and the kitchen is well supplied. The weather wasn't great but if it is better next time, we will be making more use of the deck and bbq. The neighbors were friendly and we even had an Easter egg hunt in the community garden behind the house (which is gorgeous)! We used the house as a base for day trips to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and the Monterey Bay Aquarium and a pick-your-own strawberry adventure (two toddlers along with us). The house was an outstanding value all around.

Excellent Value!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean, spacious and comfortable. Nice to be so close to the beach! Two rooms were private, but 3rd sleeping space lacks privacy. HUGE closets!!! Owners were kind and professional. Verizon cell coverage poor....but was kinda nice to not be a slave to the phone! Mahalo!

Excellent Location, Nice Home and Best of All It was Well Stocked!

  • 5 of 5

Booked this home for a couples getaway, booking was a breeze and the owner is a man of his word. It was the perfect size with 2 master bedrooms, lots of light and nice deck. Kitchen was very well stocked, all the way down to brand new dishwashing scrubber, bathrooms had tons of towels and soap. Everything was very clean, fridge had plenty of ice and a water dispenser. The beach was a 1 minute stroll away. Neighborhood was very quiet and you can see a lot of stars at night right from the deck.

Definitely want to come back here again!

Perfect Winter Writing Retreat for Three

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious, comfortable, immaculate house with plenty of bedding & towels and a generously supplied kitchen. The neighborhood is quiet, at least in wintertime. The upstairs master bed/bath/closet is enormous, the downstairs bedroom perfectly adequate. Third sleeping space lacks complete privacy but is quite comfortable. My two friends and I had a productive writing retreat, enjoyed dramatic views of intense rain squalls and the roar of storm-stirred breakers from the comfort of the house, and took beautiful walks on the blustery beach. Joseph was courteous, generous, and helpful in responding to our inquiries.

Comfy house in great location

  • 4 of 5

The Sand Dollar House turned out to be a terrific place to stay! Two bedroom, each with their own full bathroom, made staying with two couples very convenient. There's also a downstairs room with a pull-out futon that shares the downstairs bathroom to accommodate more people if you need to. The upstairs is bright with lots of windows to let the sun in. The porch was a great place to have morning coffee and look out at the ocean. The beach is a 5 minute walk down a long stretch of beach where you can walk forever. Great location!

Great house, great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent month long stay at the Sand Dollar house. The location was premier and provided the mellow beach life we were looking for. The neighborhood was extremely quiet. The house was very well stocked, including all the extras in the kitchen, blankets, and garage space for our bikes and surf boards.

If we come back to the area, we will absolutely hope to stay here again. Joseph was so professional and responsive to our every need and question.

Thanks!

I have never done VRBO before. I found this wonderful find in La Selva beach.

The house is perfect for the beach or anything else around in Santa Cruz. I loved it for it was equipped with anything you need in the kitchen...we had cooks. The BQQ was perfect, and the deck was so wonderful in the morning and the evening.

It was easy and great dealing with Joe. I had some problems with the WI Fi and he was

more than helpful to make it work.

I would do this Beach House many more times..fun times

Thank you Joe
